This is the 29th book in the Eve Dallas 'In Death' series by JD Robb.
The vicious murder of a fellow cop has Lt. Eve Dallas steamed, particularly since
the victim was romantically involved with Eve’s good pal, Chief Medical
Examiner Li Morris. Naturally he’s looking for answers, and Eve’s
bummed that all she’s got is questions that just keep piling up….
For starters, it seems Detective Amaryllis Coltraine asked for a
transfer to New York City from Atlanta to escape a lover whose father,
a criminal mastermind, is behind bars. Is it just a coincidence that
Eve is the one who put him there? Her initial shock turns to abject
fury when a box containing Coltraine’s gun arrives on her doorstep,
promising Eve’s will follow if she doesn’t drop her investigation.
Maybe the killer doesn’t know that neither Eve nor her devoted spouse
Roarke take kindly to threats, but he's about to find out….
This is another favorite series. Eve and Roarke never disappoint and I love the dynamic that the secondary characters bring to the story.
This one, though serious in nature as all these book are, brought out a humorous side to Eve that has me laughing out loud a time or two. No, Eve was not intentionally being funny - but her responses to the things that were going on around her - things so totally out of her element - were brilliant. :)
I give this book and the whole series 5 stars!!
